Here are some good 74 options:

Dave's Picks 2 - 7/31/74
Dick's Picks 12 - 6/26 and 6/28/74
Dick's Picks 31 - 8/4 8/5 and 8/6/74
Road Trips Vol. 2 No. 3 - 6/16 and 6/18/74

I've never been very happy with the sound from The Grateful Dead Movie Soundtrack, but it's great to have the video.

I would defer to others on 79-80.

I heartily rec all these picks (esp. the last 3).

The '79 recs below are solid.

Also include View from the Vault, Volume Two (June 14, 1991)

Now stop what you are doing and listen to the Thrill Ride, beginning with track #32 > https://archive.org/details/gd_nrps70-06-24.aud.pcrp5.23062.sbeok.flacf

Since you mention video, I'd recommend "Crimson, White and Indigo," the video of the 7/7/89 show in Philly. The show itself is decent enough, with some nice highlights, but more than anything I've never seen higher quality video of a Grateful Dead show.
